When it comes to art, what’s considered an accident?
Accidental art has been popping up in feeds since Instagram first begans. It comes from all angles and in all shapes, colors, sizes and styles. Whether a reflection in a puddle strikes you as impressionistic, a pile of trash appears to be a modern masterpiece or any haphazard moment in your day suddenly takes on a new light, accidental art is always around—as long as you take the time to notice it. For many Instagrammers taking the time to look at the world in a slightly more creative way, the #accidentalart hashtag has become a place to share their unique view with the rest of the Instagram community.
